Striking 13 accepts books from self-published authors and small publishing houses for review.

There is no fee to be reviewed on Striking 13. Submissions are free and will be read at our discretion.

Submissions will be screened to determine if they will be reviewed or not. But, if rejected after screening, we’ll still provide some helpful feedback and encourage you to re-submit.

All reviews are shared on social media, no matter their star rating. If you’re only interested in getting a positive review then ask your mother.

We’ve recently received more books than expected and currently estimate a 3 month turn around time between submission and completing a review, so please bear with us.

Due to the above, we’re also being more selective and as such, will no longer be accepting the following:

  • poetry (because we don’t understand it)
  • graphic novels
  • children’s books
  • short story collections from multiple authors
  • pure erotica (but romance with a mature sexual theme is fine)
  • non-fiction

Otherwise, please feel free to send us your work.
